Anyone else recently been inundated to re-verify their accounts from what seems to be nowhere?

Was verified at Betsafe and had been for years. Soon as I want to withdraw. We need your docs and a picture of you holding passport next to your face?! Do they realise how tricky it is to take a picture that is readable of your passport in that way? Passports have holographic panels on the inside the camera doesn't like that.

Why must they make it so damn difficult? I only wanted £100 out? Ended up blowing it as they kept rejecting my attempts. Seems they are all doing it, that's 3 times in the past week now.

I'd rather they did the source of wealth on me, as that is easy compared to the verification processes!

I think i said sometime agi somethjng is going on , many different casinos asking for verifying again & SOW as well, needless to say another batch of casinos have been closed, clearly not going to help you.

But just out of interest have you had any uk casino request any info for SOW or re verifying your account, because i havnt yet.

Sadly because other casinos are getting away with this, now all casinos are trying to do it. Hence why I am so vocal when a casino tries to get accredited who have newer stricter terms like 3x wager on cash deposits and selfies holding id with a letter written.

It starts to set a precedent and before you know it all casinos start doing it and it causes problems, reversals, RG issues etc.

Some casinos do it for valid reasons such as to deter money laundering but many casinos are now using it as a ploy in hopes the players gets frustrated or bored and reverse their withdraw.

Yup, someone's passed around the memo that this is a great money-saving tactic to be employed against the hapless player.

Seems casinos are desperate to tighten their purse strings, whereas maybe years ago they'd be delaying withdrawals more out of calculated hope, it now looks they're directly targeting gamblers' reversal impulses by making even small withdrawals a hassle. There's probably no limit to how many times they can make ludicrous verification requests either!

It's disappointing enough to make small withdrawals, coupled with the litany of high-variance slots out there most have been conditioned into going for bigger withdrawals anyway. This scumbo tactic doing the rounds is just likely to frustrate players into not bothering with small cashouts and refrain from the whole rigmarole of holding passports whilst making the love symbol with your hands and standing on one leg :mad:

Casinos are getting dirty now, 'tis a bad time to be a player :eek2:

If a casino is accredited here - its considered safe to play at - people will have preferences of course but Betsafe are trustworthy

some casinos and this is from my experience - Betvictor and one other for the life of me I cant remember the name - if you win and want to make a withdraw they refused me the KYC. it was around 100-200€ so not that much to make a PAB
I live in Finland for 10 years so I am Finnish resident but too lazy to get the Finnish citizenship, and these 2 casinos didn't want to make my KYC for that , even tho I have sent them papers, SOW and all that stuff they asked.
so best to try and get KYC before depositing if possible.

Guts made same to me few months ago. I tried to get explanation why because my account already was fully verified but never got answer. They just say it's because "security reasons" etc. One KYC should be enough to every casino.

3 of those go over the top at times with SOW requests.

Trada's KYC was so difficult that I had to cancel it. They wanted pic from my old credit card what I don't have anymore and some screen shot from my "trustly account". Never heard about my "trustly account". What is that? So I gave up because I just wanted verified my account anyway. No withdrawals coming.

Just been asked for picture of my card back and front scans are not accepted! Is this even allowed?
I can't photograph it
1:my camera is terrible
2: my card has silver writing. Impossible task!

With Trustly account they mean the bank account your using with it.
They just word it wrong.

An old credit card picture shouldnt be needed, should be enough if you take a screenpic of the bank account it was conected to.

I agree KYC know your customer im verified you know me clearly or you wouldnt process my withdrawls and now for no aparent reason you want to get to know me again. If you forget your customer and not know who they are all of sudden that's not very professional it's like each press of the withdrew button the casino starts to forget you in casino lingo FYC forget your customer
